Good morning, it is Monday, May 14.

First Alert Forecast

We’ll probably break some more high-temperature records today. Laura Wibbenmeyer says today could be the hottest day of our mini heat wave.

Feels-like temps will hit the mid-90s. There is a slight chance our western counties could see a storm or two. Those storms might have lightning but are not expected to be severe.

Rain chances increase during the week. Those showers will give us some heat relief. Laura says the rain showers and storms are not expected to be severe. Highs could still reach the mid-80s.

Slightly cooler air will move in after next weekend. Highs will fall to the upper 80s.
